Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Destined Crossroad contains examples of:

  • All-Loving Hero: Grigio, full stop. After the battle against Gua Spectre is over, she tries to heal Gina so her opponent can start over.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Twice, in the Battle of Planet Blizzard, to the cheers of audiences everywere.
    • The return of Ultraman Mebius Inifnity, where the Ultra Brothers band their powers into Mebius to wipe out the remaining Absolutian legions.
    • Ultraman Regulos and the Leo Brothers ontaining the powers of Albeo, Pharood and Spica, which they use to destroy Absolute Diavolo. COSMO BEAST MONARCH STRIKE!!!
  • The Artifact: A female Absolutian was intended for inclusion, only to be scrapped due to constraints. However, advertising still included her silhouette with the reveals of Diavolo and Titan.
  • Big Badass Battle Sequence: The Battle of Planet Blizzard which spans three episodes is one of the biggest live-action setpieces in the franchise's history, where the Ultra Brothers, Leo Brothers with Regulos alongside, Ultraman Ribut, Ultraman Zero and his companions takes on the entire Absolutian army. Even Ultraman King joins the fray near the end! It's as epic as it sounds.
  • Bittersweet Ending: The Absolutian army is defeated, Tartarus is sent to another dimension with Diavolo, Leo and Astra reconnect with Regulos and Yulian is saved, robbing the Kingdom of a bargaining chip. However, not only is the Absolutian deity the Lord still out there, Ribut was dragged along with Tartarus into the other dimension with no way home, and Diavolo gets revived to find that he and Tartarus are where they want to be. In addition, Belial and Tregaear are out there with the powers of their original counterparts.
  • The Bus Came Back:
  • Central Theme: Second chances. You may have lost once but the real battle has just begun. Learning from mistakes and overcoming your doubts to achieve better success.
  • Composite Character: Guar's design resembles Mold, as in Ultraman X, but is coloured white to match his appearance from Andro Melos.
  • Continuity Cameo: Trigger, Carmeara, Darrgon and Hudram appear in The Stinger, to confirm where the bad guys have ended up.
  • A Day in the Limelight: You might notice the team sent to the Kingdom's Central Planet in episode 8 comprises almost entirely of lancers, including Ultraman Astra (to Ultraman Leo), Ultraseven-21 (to Ultraman Neos), Ultraman Xenon (to Ultraman Max), Ultraman Hikari (to Ultraman Mebius), Ultraman Justice (to Ultraman Cosmos), Ultraman Victory (to Ultraman Ginga), with each and every one of them getting a chance to shine in battle. Additionally, their mission revolves around retrieving Yulian, the lancer to Ultraman 80.
  • Don't Think, Feel: This is the essence of the Training from Hell that Seven, Leo, and Joneus put Zero through, teaching him how to abandon his normal techniques and fight on nothing but pure instinct.
  • The Dreaded: Ultraman Noa, and by extension his weakened form Nexus, is treated as this, as the moment he awakens, every Ultra present is wary of him, and Ribut actively discourages an unsuspecting Titan from recklessly attacking him out of fear of what he can do. Nexus himself seems to be aware of this status and forces Ribut and Titan into working together by trapping them in his Meta Field, draining their energy whilst attacking them.
  • Enemy Mine: Invoked by Nexus, who forces Ribut and Titan to work together against him to make them see that the Ultras and Aboslutians are not that different from another and that coexistence is possible.
  • Faceless Goons: Alongside Absolute Tartarus, Absolute Diavolo and Absolute Titan, there's also a legion of gold-armoured Absolutian Warriors wearing face-obscuring helmets serving the trio, who pretty much fulfil the role of low-tier mooks. Cosmos in fact destroys at least eight of them in the pilot alone.
  • Full-Potential Upgrade: During the final battle, Z taps into the full power of Beliarok, becoming Deathcium Rise Claw.
  • Gratuitous English: The Ultra Force pepper their sentences with English phrases like "Unbelievable!" and "Of course!", just so the audience doesn't forget that they're American.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The Lord, the Absolutian deity who compels Tartarus to make war with the Land of Light rather than peace.
  • Interquel: This special takes place immediately after The Absolute Conspiracy, but before Z and Ribut's crossover with Trigger. In particular it serves as an explanation for how Ribut ended up there.
  • Invading Refugees: The reason why the Absolutians invade the Land of Light is due to their homeworld being at the brink of collapse due to not being able to withstand the very cascade rays that gave the Absolutians their powers.
  • Mass Teleportation: The Absolutians are constantly receiving reinforcements during the final battle on Planet Blizzard despite the best efforts of Ultraman, Ultraman Jack, Ultraman Ace and Ultraman Mebius in holding them off, thanks to multiple portals leading from the Absolutian's world sending hundreds of their grunts over. Mebius Infinity puts a stop to that.
  • Mythology Gag: Among the Ultras pairing up on the Absolutian home planet are Justice and Xenon, who were both once voiced by the same voice actor.
  • One-Man Army: The Batman Cold Open of the pilot has Ultraman Cosmos defeating a whole platoon of Absolutian Warriors on the surface of Planet Juran. Which, as Cosmos notes, is his absolute last resort due to Cosmos' Badass Pacifist tendencies - realizing those Absolutians aren't willing to hold back, Cosmos then switches to Corona and Eclipse mode and tears them some shiny new holes.
  • Out of Continues: Absolutians only possess at least 6 absolute hearts.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Amongst the returning Ultras who haven't appeared in the Absolute Conspiracy nor were shown in the promotional material of this series is Ultraman Noa and by extension Ultraman Nexus.
  • The Stinger: Tartarus arrives on a parallel Earth, revives Diavolo with only 5 absolute hearts left and then shows him that they are in the world of the Ultra-Ancient Giants, where they wanted to be.
  • Teach Me How To Fight: Ultraman Zero actually said this trope, nearly word-for-word, to Ultraman Joneus, after being been beaten and thrown out of Narak by Absolute Tartarus in the previous series, and having observed Ultraman Joneus holding his own against the Absolution on Ultra Planet U40.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Ultraman Nexus in Junis Blue form is already delivering a Curb-Stomp Battle against Ultroid Zero, but for some reason, he transforms into Ultraman Noa to finish the job.
